Jane is determined, sensible, and a deeply human character. Her good sense allows her to find logical solutions to the all-too-real problems of the town. But that same earthly sensibility cannot save her from the pain of having to make some tough choices. And Jane isn’t alone. All of Dahmen’s characters feel real. No one is perfect, but no one is a mustache-twirling villain, either. The antagonists do horrible things, but we can see why they think their actions are right. Everyone changes by the end of the book, but most of the changes are gradual.

Perhaps it’s Dahmen’s experience as a metalsmith that allowed her to shape her characters rather than shattering them. It’s no surprise that someone who managed to beautifully tie all of her brand’s marketing together is able to seamlessly do the same for her characters.

I absolutely loved this book. Whether Ms. Dahmen will be devoting herself to another amazing book, or another incredible cookware line, I can’t wait to see what she does next. ~ Luxury Reading

"A character at war with the world is good. A character at war with herself is better. Sara Dahmen has done something magical. She's given us one at war with both." 

                              - Scott Wilbanks, award winning author of The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster.

"Ms. Dahmen has managed to capture the very essence of the time period and the heart of the woman brave enough to find her own way in this thoroughly enjoyable and engrossing novel. Don't miss it!" 

                                -  Lesley Kagen, New York Times bestselling author ofThe Mutual Admiration Society and Whistling in the Dark

" i don't know the rules! i have no way to research and learn about the customs other than to fumble my way through them. i want to like it here in flats junction. i want to feel at home and at peace, and to scatter the unsettled feeling in my stomach so it disappears completely. if i was a weepy woman, i might feel relief with tears, but i know it will only give me a headache and red eyes. and it won't fix a thing. "

- Jane Weber : WIDOW 1881
